We are currently offering the right candidate a rare opportunity to lead a multidisciplinary specialist engineering group; our NSW and ACT ‘Consulting and Technology’ Practice. Our Consulting and Technology Practice comprises a number of specialist building engineering disciplines, including acoustics, sustainability, ICT, audio visual, security, fire engineering and digital solutions.

You will be joining a large building engineering group, which, outside of the specialist disciplines, also provides a large range of other services, including building services, structures and facades, and cost management.
